        ? even the cash shop is unfinished. you literally cant see your own character.

        It works the only way they care: You put money in, they get money. It's perfect, far as they're concerned.

    half the classes are trash in comparison with the rest of them. psyker sucks at dealing with ranged enemies and doesnt kill fast enough or deal enough damage typically. despite the zealot designed around being the melee class it has less sustain and capability of dealing with melee centric enemies like a rager when compared to the ogryn that has a knife with a stun button. the item shop is absolute garbage. crafting is worse than vermintide too.

    I played it and had fun... For about 10 hours. Once you've levelled a character there's fucking nothing else to do with it. Same handful of samey missions in the same maps. Same handful of guns. You end up with a ton of crafting mats because you've got nothing to upgrade with them because the loot system is so fucking bonk that you almost never get a useful drop and never find a good weapon in either shop. It's basically a demo content wise. Needed another year in the oven for them to actually fill it out to be worthy of full release.
    I'll reinstall it in a year or two when it's actually worth playing.
    The fundamentals of the game are great. So is the soundtrack.

          No, no. You don't understand. It's that the story is bad, it's almost non-existent. Let me retell the whole story with pretty much no omissions:
          > you're a prisoner sentenced for some fairly minor offense
          > nurgle cultists suddenly attack the ship
          > your cell gets busted so you decide to run
          > during your escape you save an Inquisitor's agent
          > this agent takes you as a (mostly expendable) soldier in service of the Inquisition
          > as you level up you meet various seemingly important characters who all say something along the lines of "you suck, but keep trying to prove yourself"
          > one of those important characters tells you there is a traitor on board
          > one of the cutscenes also shows traitor's victims with some heretical markings
          > last cutscene shows some random ass executed as a traitor
          That's all. That's the whole story. You can't tell me FS needed an actual writer to do this.

        You don't need a coherent story as much as you need context. "Bad men exist here and we want them not to" isn't very engaging. GW has struggled for ages to actually characterize their antagonists and giving them a decent motivation. The Skaven were at least really fun and easy to hate. But nurgle boys are just... nothing. They were much the same in VT2, boring. I barely remember any voice lines save for a few lines from the warriors and bosses.

        As far as I know Abnett was only involved in designing the enemies, the moebian sixth aka scabs.
        Supposedly there was more story stuff which got canned in the soft reboot during development, same with the crafting, the cutscenes when ranking up are apparently remnants of the former assets.

        Well prior to fan backlash they didn't have custom characters, there was four SPECIFIC characters one for each class the same as Vermintide.
        But fans bitched because they wanted custom characters, or rather DIDN'T want the characters to be morons and ugly women.
        I suspect this caused almost all of Dan's writing to be fucking cut and sent for reworking to be able to feature faceless, featureless anybodies that could be humans, psykers or Ogryn despite the extreme implausibility of such an event

    Imagine making a shit game and then slowly fixing it over time, learning dozens of lessons and getting a game to a place that people start to really enjoy it, then releasing a sequel that has an opportunity to take all the lessons you learned and start with a new foundation for something incredible... Only to make all the same mistakes as last time and release something in a worse state than the previous entry, and arguably worse than the previous entries launch.

      The incentive to play should be that the game is fun, which within the missions, barring crashes, I'd say it is. It's all the surrounding systems like you also mentioned that suck ass or are straight up unfinished.

      I'm not the guy you're replying to but I haven't bought the game because my PC can't handle it (the beta causes my PC to need hard rebooting several times, which hasn't happened with any game crash for a number of years)
      I come into the threads to see what people are saying because this was one of the only games I was looking forward to, so to hear that it's a fucking mess is a blessing and a curse, on the one hand I haven't wasted my money on something clearly unfinished, on the other hand there's basically fuck-all else games in the near future that I'm excited for, so to hear this is bad is very depressing

      Reminder that Warhammer is based almost wholly on Michael Moorcock's work, an anarcho-communist male feminist who was saying Tolkien was a nazi, fantasy is racist and sexist, and Britain needed to get rid of white people in the 70s.

      Any optimistic fantasy was wrong because it oppressed the masses, and good fantasy must be subversive and awful to further "the cause". He was an SJW before SJWs and the creators of Warhammer unanimously agreed with and loved him.
